An elderly horse fell into a ditch in Northwood and was stuck there for hours before firefighters were called to rescue him.
Jed, a 33-year-old farm horse, was found lying in a stream in Joel Street, Northwood, on Thursday (November 30) when a member of the public spotted him and rang London Fire Brigade.
On arrival they used winches to lift the elderly horse out of the ditch in around half-an-hour.
Jed was taken to a vet that night to be checked for injuries and was then returned to his farm.
He would later get a visit from officers at Ruislip fire station - even receiving a get well soon kiss from one of the crew.
The London Fire Brigade said in a tweet on Tuesday (December 5): "A firefighter's kiss will put a smile on the longest of faces.
"Ruislip and Wembley crews rescue 33-year-old horse called Jed after he fell into a ditch in Northwood.
"Firefighters gave him a follow up visit to check he was ok."
